Descripción

Don McCullin In Africa Published by Jonathon Cape Signed by the Photographer Don McCullin's reputation stands as one of the greatest war photographers of our times. In recent years he has photographed the landscape surrounding his home in Somerset, but his later travels have taken him to some of the most remote regions in the world. His skill in photographing people in extreme situations has enabled him to mix with tribes on the edges of civilisation. His work among the people of Irian Jaya, including cannibals, appeared in his last book, Don McCullin. McCullin's new work in Africa reaches one of the last corners of the earth where signs of outside influence are few, though they appear ominously significant. Over the last two years Don McCullin has travelled south from Addis Ababa in Ethiopia to the valley of the Omo River leading down to the border with Sudan. There he has entered the tribal lands of the Surma, the Gheleb, the Bume, the Erbore, the Bene, the Bodi, the Karo, the Hamar and the Mursi. Extraordinary body paints decorate many of their bodies. Metalwork adorns their limbs, and, in the case of the Mursi, huge circular plates extend their lower lips and piercings open up large holes in their ear lobes. Ritualistic stick battles are enacted with ferocity. Rifles and machine guns are often cradled in the hands of warriors. The violence McCullin witnessed was staged but real dangers were close. African tribespeople can present another face of the exotic to those of us in modern, developed cultures, especially if the photography recognises nothing of their dignity but all of their exoticism. McCullin knows too much to fall into that trap. McCullin's subjects retain their dignity and also become heroic. We, the viewers, can be amazed by their strength and beauty, and all the more so because McCullin's compassionate photography enables us to understand their vulnerability. McCullin's photographs will be prefaced by extracts from his diaries. Publication date: 11/08/2005 ? 176 pages ? ISBN: 0224075144. N° de ref. de la librería 2095

Sinopsis:

Don McCullin is one of the great photojournalists of our times. In recent years, his travels have taken him to some of the world’s remotest regions, and his skill and empathy have gained him access to tribes on the edge of civilization. Over the last two years, he has traveled from Addis Ababa in Ethiopia to the valley of the Omo River leading to the border with Sudan. There he entered the tribal lands of the Suma, the Gheleb, the Bume, the Erbore, the Bene, the Bodi, the Karo, the Hamar, and the Mursi. Beyond dignity, there is a heroic aspect to his subjects; we, the viewers, can be amazed by their strength and beauty, and all the more so because McCullin’s compassionate artistry enables us to understand their vulnerability.

About the Author:

Don McCullin worked for the "Sunday Times" for 18 years and covered every major conflict in his adult lifetime until the Falklands War, which the British government refused to grant him a press pass to cover, as his work was considered so powerful and evocative. Regarded by many as the finest British photojournalist of his generation, he has received many honors and awards including the CBE. His most recent books include "Don McCullin in Africa," "Unreasonable Behaviour," and his definitive monograph "Don McCullin."
